Tissue Tek Apparatus

The advanced automation of the Tissue Tek Xpress Continuous Rapid Tissue Processor continues with the next generation of the Xpress platform: Tissue Tek Xpress x Series, the only rapid tissue processor that actually speeds up the process. With the improved reagent system, enhanced QC possibilities and software options, the histopathology laboratory will achieve new levels of speed in processing, with an hourly throughput of up to 120 specimens. Specimen slides now make their way to the pathologist faster than ever, enabling same day diagnosis and thus drastically reducing patient stay and anxiety. In addition, the process without formalin and xylene employed by the Tissue Tek Xpress x Series adds a crucial advantage to the field of molecular pathology. The Xpress x Series reagents preserve DNA, RNA and proteins in the paraffin block, eliminating the need to use fresh tissue for molecular studies. The reagent provide excellent morphology, sharp nuclear detail and crisp cellular images equal to or better than conventional tissue processing.
